Problem

Every year, 19 million ambulances arrive to Emergency Departments (ED) in the United States. Yet across the country, paramedics and EDs still rely on low-quality radio transmissions to relay urgent messages. Without a patient name, EKG, or photo, diagnosis is often delayed until the patient arrives, leading to wasted time and costly delays in treatment. For strokes and heart attacks alone, improving ED outcomes represents a $2.1 billion market opportunity.

Solution

First responders use the Twiage smartphone app to instantly capture video of a stroke, EKG of a heart attack, photos from a trauma scene, or digital voice memos. This information is combined with GPS tracking and sent to hospitals in real-time via the Twiage dashboard, a visual tracker of all incoming ambulances. By providing EDs with rich situational awareness of their inbound traffic, Twiage enables ED staff to accurately predict patient arrival and prioritize resources.

Mission and Vision

Twiage’s Vision is to become the new standard data-sharing platform for healthcare communication and clinical workflow to accelerate life-saving care.

Innovation Description

Twiage provides a HIPAA-compliant communication and clinical workflow technology that delivers real-time data from ambulance to hospital. EMTs use the Twiage app to share patient IDs, vital signs, EKGs, photos, and videos. Each case is tracked by GPS and sent to hospitals in real-time via the Twiage dashboard, a visual tracker of all incoming ambulances to the hospital. By providing EDs with rich situational awareness of their inbound traffic, Twiage empowers hospitals to accurately predict patient arrival and prioritize resources, which helps hospitals save time, improve ED throughput and quality metrics, and grow their business. Twiage has reduced door-to-room wait times by 30%, reduced EMS turnaround time by 65%, and increased EMS admission revenues by up 5%. For the average hospital, that translates to $2M in additional revenue each year.

Competitive Advantage

Twiage's easy-to-use and intuitive design make it much easy for EMS and hospital users to engage communication. This is proved by our monthly case utilization being the highest among the competition. Twiage also allow hospital users to access its information across multiple points of access via the web-based dashboard and smartphone app, which makes it easier for hospital users to create parallel process to improve efficiency. allows hospital users to access information easily on multiple points and devices
